Like most of us, Michael Bay has some regrets about the past - and though he's not exactly the type of director or person to ever admit wrong-doing, he did reveal one during recent interview with the Miami Herald. Tell us, Michael:

"I will apologize for Armageddon, because we had to do the whole movie in 16 weeks. It was a massive undertaking. That was not fair to the movie. I would redo the entire third act if I could. But the studio literally took the movie away from us. It was terrible."

Unlike many of us, though, Bay was able to call his good friend, Avatar director James Cameron, for advice. "My visual effects supervisor had a nervous breakdown, so I had to be in charge of that," he said. "I called James Cameron and asked 'What do you do when you’re doing all the effects yourself?' But the movie did fine."

For the record, here is Michael Bay's definition of 'fine': When Armageddon was released in 1998, it became the highest-grossing film of the year worldwide. 

Now, where is our apology for Bad Boys II?
